As noted, WWE announced on Monday afternoon that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar had re-signed with WWE.

Middleton wrote "there were words exchanged" but that things didn't get physical before Lesnar left with advocate Paul Heyman.

Meltzer finished by noting any rumors of the blood in the match being a case of Lesnar going into business for himself, or rumors of Roman Reigns being legitimately "double crossed" in the match are completely untrue.

According to Give Me Sport, Steven Muehlhausen of Sporting News and Fightful claims the five-time world champion put pen to paper on a multi-year deal and will be allowed to fight for Dana White's promotion as he is still under UFC contract, which he signed before his UFC 200 clash against Mark Hunt. The reason for the alleged confrontation remains unclear.

It has been four days since WrestleMania 34, and the main event finish continues to be a hot topic of discussion, as has been the future of Brock Lesnar following the announcement that he has re-signed with WWE and will be defending the Universal Title against Roman Reigns at Greatest Royal Rumble.

Lesnar's new deal also includes a significant pay raise. It is a possibility that Lesnar would only work this one match under the contract even though the contract is not listed as a one-match deal, with the likelihood of the contract expiring as early as August, even before WWE SummerSlam.

Lesnar was linked with a WWE exodus after WrestleMania 34 to reignite his MMA career.

The company has painted itself into a corner regarding what it can do with Lesnar.

The WWE Universe may be more receptive toward Lesnar if he goes away after the Greatest Royal Rumble and comes back around the 2019 Royal Rumble or WrestleMania 35.
